You THINK you can’t make money with Facebook? Let’s take this outside.

Oct 6


Whoop whoop wham whoomph!  Let’s duke this out.  Are you hearing that you can’t earn moola with Facebook?  I’m calling bullshit.  That whole giddy up about Facebook being useless for advertising is exactly that.  Useless information.

Here’s the truth: 

Facebook does have the giddy up and go go for making money for YOU.   You’ll be as happy as a lark.  On the downside, there has been a bunch of flack about Facebook and its algorithms.


#Facebook algorithms can make you cray-cray

Oh boy. Eeeeeeek.


Ignore the haters.  They are funking up the room.  You are about to prove them wrong.  You’ll be ahead of the game.

I get it.  I get that keeping up with Facebook changes can make you feel like you are losing your mind.

Facebook feels hot and cold and it changes more than the weather.

I’m about to show you that you can shake your groove thing on Facebook.

You can, in fact, make money with Facebook.  If you do it right. 


Let’s not pussy foot around the issue anymore …

When people tell me that they can’t earn money with Facebook, I want to attack them with my pen.


#Facebook & Design The Life You Want To Live


I have three words for them : Get over it.


I know all of the Facebook shenanigans must make you feel a little bit bonkers.


Been there.  Done that.


Remember this:  Earning moola with Facebook is like a good shot of espresso.  It’ll help you run straight to the bank.


How do you do it?   You just have to start.


#Facebook : It's a beautiful thing.

It’s a beautiful thing !!


But first, the question that I want to slap on the table, smother in butter ….

… and offer up for the taking is this:

Do you know how to use Facebook for your business?


If not, you need to learn how.  Right now.  


Helloooo Facebook marketing.  Helloooooo Amy Porterfield.  Let’s get our learning on.

I’ve gotta tell you, I have loved Facebook and hated it, in equal parts.

Not gonna lie.

Would you think more of Facebook, if it earned some money bananas for your?  Hmmm.  Let’s think about that for just one second.  Okay, thought about it.  Time’s up.  YES.

But still.  That naggy little jerk in our head says …


Should I really be spending money in Facebook? For what?  Whaaaat?? Does it work? Is it bullshit?  Is it worth it?  Do I need to learn about Facebook algorithms?!!  Erhmergerd.  Shoot me.  Shoot me now. 


Just me?  Okay.

*awkward silence*   haha.



Do you want to get rid of your Facebook night sweats once and for all?

Gotcha covered.


Let me introduce you to Amy Porterfield.  She’s as sharp as a tack.  Rock me Amadeus.  She changed my Facebook world.  #JustSayin’

I actually met Amy in real life, once.  I could hardly speak.  Suddenly, English became my second language.   I was so excited to meet her, I almost popped my Spanx.  I’m such a dork.

Amy Porterfield is one of the world’s most respected authorities on Facebook Marketing for small business.  She has 108,000 Facebook fans!


That kinda sorta makes me a bit jelly jealous.  Shhhhh.


She’s smart.  Smart as all get out.  You should pick up what she puts down. She drops seriously good Facebook knowledge bombs.   


Amy has been a fave of mine for about 2 years now.  I have watched countless webinars and learned a ton.  An absolute ton.  I repeat.  A ton.  I’ve become a Facebook smarty pants.

Her free webinars are that good.

Learn how to earn money with Facebook advertising



Here’s the deal. I watched Amy’s free webinar, the Facebook Marketing Plan and it taught me how to create my first ad.  It is soooo good.  You have got to watch it.  Keep your googley eyes peeled, keep your ears perked and your pencil pointy.. she doles out a lot of pointers.  Big time.


Guess what happened !?


I spent $25 with Facebook advertising and earned $447.


Guess what happened after that?!


You can bet your bottom dollar that I happy danced that one out.

Okay, it wasn’t a gazillion dollars, but I was proud as punch to earn any dollars from a platform that I once thought was a dud.

How did I do it?

Before Amy Porterfield entered my life,  my Facebook ads earned me a whopping $0 dollars.  Yeah, I was Facebook smart like that.

*face palm*


Amy teaches the coolest, newest most useful tools on Facebook.  She teaches you how to market yourself and your business … for GASP… profits!!  Money can feel like a bit of a dirty word, until you start earning it.  Dollar signs for eyeballs suddenly becomes appealing.

Advertising on Facebook equals making MONEY $$.  High-five.


Ba-da-boom-bada-bing.  Ching. Ching.


I normally hate talking about money.   I hate talking numbers.  Go square root your Auntie.


The point is that all this money talk and Facebook shenanigans is what got me thinking…

If I were a business owner, company with physical presence or online entrepreneur,  I’d do one simple thing to make shit happen.


I’d go to hell or high water to make people talk about my brand.


Why?  Because when people talk about your brand, it can equate to profits… if you do it right.


That’s a fact.


You need to have a system in place to do it right.

Listen here, GoGo Gadget, simultaneously patting your stomach and rubbing your head while goofing off on Facebook isn’t actually a big accomplishment.  It is not having a system in place.  It’s goofing off.

I’ve got your number.

It isn’t a big accomplishment to scroll through your news feed and find out what Aunt Ethel is up to.  Yawn.


Now, knowing how to market your brand or business on Facebook, THAT my friend, is an accomplishment.


It can earn you some bananas in your bank account.

Work smarter, not harder.

    You’re such a fun crazy girl that I’d love to “tip” a few back with. Would love some great tips on the old FB, it’s definitely a love-hate relationship.

    I’ve been a fan of Amy’s for quite awhile now but honestly kind of forgotten about all the great info she shares. Going to watch the the videos ASAP.

    Here’s my page:

    You won me at “throat punch”. You are hilarious.
    Help me! Ever been too busy to watch a webinar in small business but you know you have to. An Aussie mum/widow in Hong Kong avoiding the spanking banking world if I can!
    Love your advice.
